Ann Coulter Calls For a "New McCarthyism"

THIS IS NOT A TRANSCRIPT. This is as close to the stated remarks as I could come, typing furiously. I missed an awful lot, and I've had to paraphrase in places.

So consider this ALL A PARAPHRASE, not quotes. But the words I wrote down are fairly close to Ann's remarks.

Ann was joined for questions by Matt Drudge. Where I paraphrase a questioner's words, I will preface it by "Q:". Drudge's words will be prefaced by "DRUDGE:" (duh). Everything else is Coulter.


Liberals are so cute when they’re frightened and trembling...

New DNC leadership has a new slogan: now under new mismanagement. They don't think they need to change their ideas at all. 20-30% of the country supports gay marriage, so they say, “Let’s make that our main issue.”

They whine that they "can't get their message out." (Sarcastic voice) If only they had some sort of support from the mainstream media.... if only they had a crack, a toe-hold... some sympathetic ears in the media....

Oh, I know, let’s go on tour with rock-stars... note, if your last album came out on 8-track, maybe you’re not going to win the young voters....

[Long list of questions asking "was it a good idea or bad idea to force gay marriage on America," etc., concluding with:] Was it a good idea or a bad idea for our candidate to vote against funding our troops while they’re in battle?

It would have been so easy to change their positions and just admit they were wrong... It just gets better and better.

Barbara Boxer is a great candidate for the Democrats... female *and* learning-disabled.

Human dirigible Ted Kennedy is the new face of them trying to show they’re middle of the road.

Didn’t he have some trouble sticking to the middle of the road once?

I think I’m less offended by their attacks on Jesus Christ than they are about our attacks on Spongebob.

[She then makes my basic point about L'Affaire Jeff Gannon-- that they're outing a nobody from an obscure web-site while we're outing Raines, Rather, and Jordan.]

Is it just me or has no one ever heard of Talon News?

They got theirs-- they busted a reporter at the mighty and prestigious Talon News.

At least in Republican administration the escort services are being run out of obscure web-sties rather than out of the White House.

The MSM still sets the agenda, despite the great power of Talon News....they set the agenda and we disrupt it.

Roger Ailes seems to have a mole at MSNBC... it seems like they’re trying to get off the air.

If Chris Matthews ever interviews Tucker Carlson and Ron Reagan Jr. simultaneous, MSNBC will just spontaneously go off the air.

Brit Hume gets a lousy million viewers and liberals think it’s fascism in America.
They are beign silenced, but only by the convenience of my remote control.

Since they’re always acting like they’re being oppressed, I say let’s do it, let’s oppress them.

Get the professors advocating treason in your colleges... define, attack, and destroy. They accuse us of oppression even when we’re not doing anything, let’s do it, let’s oppress them.

Let’s burn their books when they burn our conservative newspapers... that way we can oppress them and increase global warming at the same time.

Let’s say that “Traitors’ are the one things professors can’t be... I realize I’ve just suggested firing the entire Harvard faculty.

Ward Churchill, having faked an ethnic credit to get a cushy job, he should have just laid low.

Let's say his claim to be an Indian is tenuous at best... I haven't seen a claim of Indian heritage this weak since Jane Fonda married Ted Turner. [I assume this is an Atlanta Braves reference.]

I’ve seen more accurate epictions of the indian heritage by watching reruns of F-troop.

Al Franken, the angriest man who ever claimed to be a humorist, finally said something funny in the past year, but he stole it from Bill Hicks. [I missed the actual line... she might not have been serious about this. I will have to compare notes with others to figure out what she was talking about.]

Let’s step up this fight. These institutions can be shaken. Look at Dan Rather. One down, two to go.

CBS is planning a tribute to Dan Rather... the memo went out a month ago but everyone assumed it was a fake.

Ronald Reagan was way ahead of his time predicting we’d bring the Soviet Union down...it was much tougher to bring Dan Rather down. Liberals lied in wait for a long time to get Alger Hisss.

We waited 35 years to get Dan Rather. Sleep well, Richard Nixon.

[She then quotes from the Godfather... something like, "If you have patience, you can bring down anyone, no matter how mighty."]

Liberals are all whining about the alleged sexual torure at Guantanamo... How about we force the trrrorists to watch Will & Grace?

They’ve been whining about McCarthyism for so long I say we give it to them.

They’ve had intellectual terror on the campuses for years.... we have rabid savages trying to kill us. Anyone who quibbles about that or equivocates is unnacceptable.

It’s time for a New McCarthyism.


(Q&A portion has NOT been cleaned up yet. I'll do that later... right now I need a smoke, and I'd like to see if I can get a pic of Ann and Matt. You probably shouldn't bother reading what follows until it's been made more readable.)


Matt Drudge joins.

Matt endorses Chris Rock over Norman Mailer (Couoter gore vidal)

emotion... Reps with rational appeals— would you think that Reps need to do more emotional appeal?


“Their glands prevent most men from being a Democrat. It isn’t so much that they communicate by emotion, that elevates what they do... they attack. The NYT has become out-weekly, outing the gay relatives of Reps... I thought they liked gays.

Their method of arguing about the capital gains attacks is to investigate whether you’re into S&M.

Drudge: Geffen is fighting Hillary. They’re not unified.

Q to Rice: Not qualified, because had no elective office, names Presidents who were sec’s of state.

“Going to this century.... names Buchanan, Keyes, etc., I think that you have to run for something first. I love Condi Rice.... there’s some ineffeble quality. She ought to challenge Boxer or Feinstein.”

Drudge: In the new century you’ll see non-elected people rising to president... if Oprah ran, she’d be the Dem nominee.

How can we define Hillary>

Ann – I think people know who she is, but I think they love her anyway.

Two positions on why we keep losing– they couldn’t get their message out– RU 486 on NASCAR cars – or tht the voters are dumb. That’ll bring em out!

Drudge: They’re also counting on people not remembering one election to the next. But the Internet to their horror keeps track of these things.

Why is treason treated as an acceptable form of speech? I think it should be treated as racism now is, no longer acceptable. ©

IT’s very easy to provoke liberals.... it doesn’t take much and it’s a lot of fun. I think there should be campaigns against profs like WC.... expose them.

Drudge: I think we should use performance art... mockery is the best way to attack them. (I agree)

Ann gets discombobulated when asked why she slammed the 50's traitors, but seemed to defend the South’s right to secede.
I think the first civil right is the right to secede...

all the intellectual ferment on colleges campuses is coming from the right... we have all the ideas... we are sweeping the youth of America... they are going the way of the Whigs.
